As I let go and trust God, I am calm and secure.
As a child, I may have clutched a favorite blanket or toy for a sense of security. I may have feared that letting it go would change my world. As I grew and matured, I learned to lay down those props, realizing I didn’t need them to live with confidence. Today I ask myself: Am I attached to something that needs to be released? A belief or habit, person or place? As I remember my resistance to giving up my childhood attachments, I ask: Is there something I need to let go of now? I release any unhealthy dependence on people, places, or things. I am ready to let them go and allow myself to grow. I open my life to new opportunities. Guided by the spirit of God in me, I am whole, safe, and confident.
Let your steadfast love and your faithfulness keep me safe forever.—Psalm 40:11
